What is a Lisfranc Injury?

A Lisfranc joint injury involves a type of injury to the bones and/or ligaments, in the central area of the foot. In a Lisfranc joint injury, the cartilage covering these bones usually suffers damage. In the middle region of the foot (midfoot), a cluster of small bones form an arch. Damaging these delicate bones creates a lisfranc injury.
